Tenebrae: “A Service of Light & Darkness.” On Friday, March 30th at 7:30 p.m. we’ll hold our Good Friday Tenebrae Service. Focusing on the Seven Last Words of Christ upon the Cross, the account of Good Friday is read, interspersed with music to help tell the story. As the account is read, the sanctuary darkens, in this very moving service.Join us in the sanctuary at 7:30 pm.

2019 announcement below

A Tenebrae service is one of the oldest services in the Christian Church. It’s a service of light & darkness, based on the seven last words of Jesus from the Cross. As the words are heard, the sanctuary darkens until it is eventually pitch dark. A single candle re-enters symbolizing the hope of Easter Sunday. Moving spirituals and hymns are sung throughout as we “survey the wondrous cross.”
